I am 27 years old. Since 19, I am having acne problems. I have consulted so many dermatologist and was under medication of Doxy 1 and Clindamycin for nearly 4 to 5years. Another Doctor prescribed me Amoxycyllin Clavanate and Benzoyl Peroxide for topical application. But as soon as I stop medication, acne reappears again. Why does acne reoccur?

I have been suffering from acne problem since I was 16, I have seen many dermatoligist regarding the same but nothing really worked. Right now I am on zevit and cod liver tablets suggested by a family doctor friend. My query is what is the maximum dosage of these I can have, and are there any suggestions?
Dear Friend.

These are supplements. Not required in a healthy person , who takes balanced diet.
However , to answer your query , Zevit is given once a day. And Cod liver Oil can be taken 2-3 capsules a day.
They are not going to help you with acne problems.
